Dakota Johnson reveals what is really going on in that Angelina Jolie-Jennifer Anniston Golden Globes pic
We all know Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston are mortal enemies - like Arya and Cersei, Kylo and Rey, and Mario and Bowser. Okay, maybe they're not mortal enemies, but at the very least, it has to be awkward when they're in the same room together.
Not familiar with the whole situation? Don't worry. I majored in Celebrity Dating History in college. Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt were married for five years, and got divorced in 2005. Rumor has it Angelina "stole" Brad away, while they were shooting Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Brangelina started dating, and eventually got married, but then they got divorced too, just last year. Now Brad, 54, has been spotted dating Jennifer Lawrence and the 21-year-old actress who played a teenage Angelina Jolie in Maleficent. And when he picks up girls, he goes by "William."
At this year's Golden Globes Awards, the two ex-es had to face each other, in a hilariously awkward moment. Jennifer Aniston took the stage to present an award to comedy legend Carol Burnett, and guess who was sitting directly in her line of sight? Maleficent, Mrs. Smith, the original Tomb Raider, Angelina Jolie. While Jennifer speaks, Angelina averts her eyed, glued to her phone, or a particularly interesting wine stain on the tablecloth. Meanwhile, Dakota Johnson stares at Angelina, riveted. The photo of her priceless expression went viral, with many people saying "We are all Dakota." How will Angelina react?
On The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Dakota didn't deny she stole a glance at Angelina. "But so is Armie’s [Hammer] wife," the actress pointed out. "I’m not the only one. Elizabeth [Chambers] is very blatantly looking at her. She’s like, ‘What is she going to do?’ And I was trying to be sly about it." (Way to throw Elizabeth under the bus, Dakota!)
However, Angelina's salty expression didn't have her full attention. Dakota goes on to say that if you look at the angle of her eyes, she's actually looking past Angelina, at a different table. And who was sitting at that table, out of all the big celebrities at the event? The kids from Stranger Things.
"There was the actual kids table, which was the Stranger Things table," explained Dakota. "And I really love Stranger Things, so I tried to send my friend a—which is the thing that I hate the most, when people are in restaurants, when they try to take a sneaky picture of you like this... But I was trying to take a video of these kids. They’re children, I know, and I was zooming in but then I also accidentally caught maybe Ridley Scott asleep. But then I think maybe he was just looking at his phone. But it looked like he was asleep."
It must be a surreal experience to attend the Golden Globes and be surrounded by movie stars and television stars (asleep or awake). Well, Dakota can try to cover her tracks, but I don't believe it. When Jennifer Aniston made a speech in front of Angelina Jolie, there's only one thing everybody was looking at (and it wasn't Ridley Scott sleeping).
